Seven strangers are invited to a weekend house party on Soldier Island by the anonymous Mr or Mrs U.N. Owen, along with domestic staff Mr and Mrs Rogers and Vera Claythorne who has been offered a secretarial post. There is no host to greet them but Rogers is instructed to play a record, which names them all as being responsible for a death for which they were not caught and punished. There is the children's rhyme ending And Then There Were None in each room and ten miniature figures of soldiers on the dining room table. One of the guests is revealed to be an impostor but then another dies in the manner of the first little soldier and next day a second victim is claimed in the same way and two of the model soldiers have been removed.
